100 Square 100 Square

An incredibly versatile teaching tool. You can change the start number and change the step size, then try and find the hidden number. Choose from several difficulty levels. Ask the children to discuss  the different methods they could use to find the missing number.

Can be used to explore sequences (including negative numbers and decimals),  multiplication tables, as well as reasoning about numbers.

Numbers on a Carroll Diagram - Missing Labels Numbers on a Carroll Diagram - Missing Labels

Drag the correct labels onto the Carroll diagram. A great game to encourage reasoning about the properties of numbers. Works really well as a mental starter.

Fractions Shape Sequences Fractions Shape Sequences

Recognise and continue the sequences involving fractions, shapes and colours. Lots of control over level including unit fractions and improper fractions. Extend children by choosing harder levels which require extending the sequence by finding general rules.

Sorting 3D Shapes on a Venn Diagram Sorting 3D Shapes on a Venn Diagram

Use a Venn diagram to sort a variety of 3D shapes according to their properties, including: whether they are pyramids or prisms, the number of faces, edges and vertices and whether they have a curved surface.

Sequences Sequences

Find the correct number in a sequence. Lots of choice over level, count forwards or back, count in whole numbers, multiples of 10, multiples of 100, decimals and fractions.

Venn sort numbers Venn sort numbers

Sort numbers on a Venn diagram. Sort according to one or two properties, including: odd, even, multiples, square numbers, prime numbers, triangular numbers, numbers less than 30 or more than 50.

Sorting 2D shapes on a Carroll diagram Sorting 2D shapes on a Carroll diagram

Sort a variety of 2d shapes on a Carroll diagram. Sort by one or two conditions. Sort triangles - scalene, equilateral and isosceles. Sort quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, heptagons and octagons, as well as parallelograms, rhombus, kites and trapeziums. Also sort according to a shapes properties such as acute, obtuse, reflex or right angles and symmetry or whether it is a regular shape.

**2nd May 2013 - I have updated this game as somebody has rightly pointed out to me that equilateral triangles are also isosceles. My apologies for the error.**

ITP Number Grid ITP Number Grid

View full screen in your browser.  This ITP generates a 100 square. Choose a colour or the grey mask. You can then click on individual cells to hide or highlight them in different colours, and by clicking on the box at the left-hand foot of the grid and using the pointers you can hide or highlight rows and columns. The prime numbers and multiples can also be highlighted.
You can change the number of columns from 3 up to 13, the starting number, and its position – either top left corner or bottom left corner of the grid. Choose the mask option to create a temple that can be moved around the grid to hide or highlight particular groups of cells. The template can be rotated using the single arrow button.
The ITP can be used to explore different multiples, number sequences and patterns on grids of different sizes. The superimposed masked template can provide practice at adding groups of numbers and enable children to hypotheses about the sums and difference of the numbers.
The ITP can develop children’s ability to predict and generalise. Changing the number of columns provides a new grid to test general statements about the relationships between numbers and to look for counter examples.
